Official Guides to the City of London

Mark Pessell




I am a fourth generation Londoner, who after a long career travelling the world in business consultancy decided being a full time Londoner was far more enjoyable. I've had a lifelong interest in history and London, and have a passion for discovering and sharing fascinating stuff about this amazing, vibrant, cosmopolitan city, both with those who are new to London and those who have spent their lives here. I run a small number of scheduled walks, allowing me to introduce you to some of my favourite locations in the City and the wider metropolis. I can also create private, customised tours for organisations, families and groups – please get in touch to discuss your ideas and requirements. Fully insured.

I'm known as 'the London Wanderer' from my website, where I also maintain a blog full of (I hope!) fascinating articles about the more obscure sides of London.  Follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
